I want to be able to specify alternate text based on code for an icon displayed in a view column. Similar to the alt attribute of <img>.  I'm imagining something like the way the foreground/background color is specified such as:

     field  = "1"; 92 : @Formula( somefield );
     "" )

Yes and extend this to use @UserNameLanguage and @LanguagePreference so that you can use the same symbol in different countries without having to rewrite every part of the view.

For people writing software for use by users who need adaptive hardware/software for disabilities, this is vital. For goverment, Section 508 compliance requires that clickable images have some sort of alt text.
